Political Coup after Financial Coup; the Role of America in Venezuela Turmoil

Venezuela coup in 2002 under the influence of the US

Venezuela controversies apparently set off weeks ago after the disputing rule passed by the supreme court giving some authorities of the national assembly to the president. The origins of the turmoil, however, must be looked for somewhere outside Latin America.

The American Council on Foreign Relation (CFR) and its role in the recent movements is illuminating in reaching a deeper understanding of them. During the first round of OAS talks last month, Shannon K. O’Neil, Latin America director of CFR, made a speech about the actions to be done in Venezuela to wipe the country off the traces of Chavez. Talking before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, O’Neil provided the audience with a portfolio of the actions done and to be done.

There are famous people among the senior members of CFR who totally account for more than 4500 members. As Misión Verdad writes in an article:

These include Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell, responsible for the war in Vietnam, Yugoslavia and Iraq respectively, and in the case of Powell, a major player in the April 2002 coup.

To this list, the name of David Rockefeller should also be added. Rockefeller is the former owner of Standard Oil company which has had deep influence in Venezuela.

CFR financers have deep impact in making the strategies for the commission. Exxon Mobil and Chevron are among the main financers. Chevron’s role in imposing sanctions on Venezuela is significant and Exxon “wants to create conflict between Guyana and Venezuela in order to take advantage of the large oil reserves in Essequibo.” Citibank and its oppressing force by blocking the accounts of the Central Bank of Venezuela and the Bank of Venezuela is by no means negligible.

These are some of the players in the arena of financial coup in Venezuela to be followed by a political one. Collin Powel, as mentioned above as a senior member of CFR, had a main role in 2002 coup in Venezuela being the US Secretary of State then. As such, what O’Neil presented last month was the steps to be taken to reach at the political coup.

The removal of Maduro started by denigrating his character and government in media. A humanitarian crisis, reached at by the financial coup explicated so far, in Venezuela was transmitted by the mainstream media sponsored by CFR. Besides, sanctions on “human rights violators, narco-traffickers and corrupt officials” like Vice President Tareck El Aissami, being accused of international drug trafficking, has been decided to continue.

The US government is also suggested to take a tougher stance within OAS to oppress Venezuela by democratic charter. Marco Rubio, the anti-Venezuela lobby leader, is used as a “threat against Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and El Salvador” to prevent their aide for Maduro and he is accompanied by the US government putting pressure on Venezuela allies.

Rex Tillerson, the former General manager of Exxon Mobil and current US Secretary of State, is utilized to intervene the local affairs of Venezuela and get US more involved in the target country.

The plots are made meticulously to topple Venezuela’s government by the financial and political war while Maduro is trying to make his people aware of the root of the disputes. The only way to control the riots in Venezuela is to get people informed of what has been and is taking place in the country.
